General info

1.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR
Sony FE 24-70mm F/4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T*
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
2.weight

655g

426g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.Has a metal mount
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR
Sony FE 24-70mm F/4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T*
A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.
4.minimum focal length

16mm

24mm

A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
5.Includes lens hood
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR
Sony FE 24-70mm F/4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T*
It comes with a lens hood so that you don’t have to buy it separately. These are used to block strong light sources, such as the sun, from the lens to prevent glare and lens flare.
6.maximum focal length

55mm

70mm

A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.

Optics

1.has built-in optical image stabilization
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR
Sony FE 24-70mm F/4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T*
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
2.maximum angle of view

83.2°

84.1°

At the shorter end of the lens you get the widest angle of view. This allows you to fit more of the scene into the photograph (based on APS-C format).
3.minimum angle of view

29°

34.3°

At the longest end of the lens you get the narrowest angle of view. This allows you to fit a small portion of the scene into the photograph, such as when you are zooming in on a subject (based on APS-C format).
4.magnification

0.16x

0.2x

A true macro lens has a magnification of 1:1. This means that the image produced is a life-size representation of the subject being photographed.

Aperture

1.wide aperture (main camera)

f/2.8

f/4.0

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
2.widest aperture at maximum focal length

2.8f

4f

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
3.Has rounded aperture blades

Sony FE 24-70mm F/4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T*
Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.
4.aperture blades

9

7

The aperture controls how much light gets through to the camera’s sensor. More blades is often an indicator of a better quality lens. It also allows you to achieve much nicer looking bokeh when blurring out your background, whereas a lens with less blades will often produce harsher, more polygonal bokeh.

Focus

1.Has focus motor
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR
Sony FE 24-70mm F/4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T*
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.
2.minimum focus distance

0.3m

0.4m

This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.
